Natural Products in OBC

Our latest selection of Natural Products research works from our sister journal OBC…

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, our sister journal, publishes many articles that cover natural product chemistry.

We will try to keep you updated, although the safest bet is for you to sign up to OBC’s e-alert (free service) and receive the table of content directly in your inbox every time an issue is published.


The latest natural products’ related articles published in issue 18 and issue 19 have been collated here:
